Think Well Before Writing an Answer

Avoid making too many mistakes such over handwriting, scribble writing etc. this may cause a bad impression to the examiner. Try to think about the possible answers as much as you can.

Always try to start writing with an answer you are confident about.

Use Heads and Sub-heads

Headings and subheading create a structure of your answers that let the examiner read the whole answer without actually reading the whole answer.


After you are done writing all your answers proofread your answer paper as long as you can. This will point out many grammatical mistakes, typos, and spelling mistakes. You can also come up with some better words to make your sentences sound good.


Q: “What should I do if my mind becomes blank while writing answers?”

Ans: Re-read your answer. This can help you to remember the rest of the answer. If it doesn’t work, leave it blank and come back to it after sometimes when you feel relax. You will make out most of it.

Q: What to do while running out of time?

Ans: This is one of the most common problems of examinees. Most of them are unable to manage all the answers in time. If this is the case, then I should suggest you not to waste your precious time thinking about the questions you possibly don’t know the answers of. Try to write what you know at the beginning of the exam and eventually you will get the idea on what to write as answers on the hard questions.
